A social media win or why the boy is also going to be an astronaut

The boy has decided that besides being a teacher, who gives lots of hard homework, he might also like to be an astronaut. The reason? Chris Hadfield. I've been following Chris Hadfield on Twitter (@Cmdr_Hadfield) (and Facebook and Tumblr) and sharing his pictures and videos with the boy. The boy loves finding out cool space facts, seeing pictures of the earth, and he was glued to the TV on the weekend watching the EVA (or spacewalk, for those of us not in the know). 

Thankfully, Chris Hadfield says he's got lots of pictures still to share, so even when his mission ends, he'll still be tweeting. 

With Chris Hadfield coming home from the ISS today, I would like to thank him for getting social media 100% right. He entertained, informed and inspired us all.

Ground control to Major Boy. . . 

(If you haven't seen Chris Hadfield's cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity, you should go check it out now. It's yet another reason to love social media )
